No-Code September 22, 2020

Hi 👋 - I'm the new no-code moderator!

Lacey Kesler @laceykesler

Hey No-Code Community!

My name is Lacey Kesler and I'm so excited to join this community!

I'm going to be moderating this community and continuing Courtland's work to build a strong No-Code community on IH.

I'm excited to get to know you and provide resources, AMAs, online events, etc. to foster the growth here.

A little bit about me:

No-Code is my fulltime gig. I do freelance projects where I build startups with no-code tools. I also run a separate community of Women in No-Code and have a podcast called Visual Dev. FM. I've trained at Stanford University on no-code, as well as the Bloomberg Beta team. I'm working on some side projects that are focused on no-code education that I hope to roll out later this year.

I'm here to help you grow and learn - if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. :)

If there is a way this community can serve you better, I'd like to hear about it.

    Hi Lacey,
    Congratulation. I also work on a few projects with no-code tools. It's interested to hear that there is a training related to this subject at Stanford University. Would you share more information about that course or class? Thank you.

    1. 3

      Hey there! Thanks!

      Sure, we (myself, Ben, and Matt who I work with on Visual Dev FM) were invited by Elliott Adams (he is a founder / advisor in the startup world) and he engaged Standford about facilitating a no-code course for a 6 or 8 weeks, I think.

      So, Elliott invited us to come to speak and teach what we know about no-code. Elliott brought in different speakers on different weeks and I think had the students start working with the tools.

      Ben, Matt, and I are also faciliating training at another college in California in October on using no-code to build digital products.

    Hi Lacey! I'm putting together content for AppGyver (https://www.appgyver.com/) at the moment. I'm also planning a podcast with another female colleague, where we'll cover themes like nocode, diversity in tech, and the open source movement.

    Seems like we have a lot of similar values :D Would love to be in contact with you and chat about possible collaborations.

    1. 1

      Hey @radioesmee!

      That's so cool! I've seen AppGyver but haven't gotten to play with it yet! I want to though!

      I'd love to chat about collaborations! DM me on Twitter @laceykesler and let's chat!

    Hi @laceykesler! Excited to learn from your resources etc 😊 I just launched an app for no-code designing in SwiftUI (https://www.detailspro.app).

    I think, most of all, I'm interested in community-building and how to encourage the designers and devs who use my app to engage and share their feedback.

    1. 1

      Hey, that's awesome! The layout is super clean - nice work!

      I'm seeing more and more products offer community as a form of support with their product and it seems to be going well when the community is engaged.

    Welcome and best wishes for your contributions to this community. I'm pinging @radioesmee who may be interested.

    Hi Lacey,
    Great to see a female mod here :)
    I look forward to learning from you and the other ladies in the no-code space in general.
    I'm the founder of No-code Campus, a free no-code program for kids in Rwanda.
    Nothing close to Stanford but it's pretty cool to see how these young people enjoy the process.

    1. 1

      Thank you so much for your warm welcome! :)

      I'd love to hear more about the program you're offering kids! My oldest daughter is getting into visual development and it's so fun to watch her learn and discover!

    Congrats! No-Code typically means more clicking; less typing. For you ... not so much. ;-)

  7. 1

    Congrats, Lacey! Super strong no-code community on IH! I've gotten more interactions on no-code than the developers channel! 🤪 Looking forward to seeing it gaining more and more supports!

    @laceykesler good to have you. what would be your advice to yourself 48 hours ago?

    1. 2

      My advice to myself 48 hours ago would be that weekends are for sleep, not staying up late. ;)

      In all honesty, it would be not to get so anxious about things I can't control. I was traveling over the weekend, had a lot on my mind and things to do, and instead of enjoying my trip, I was just stressed.

      I wish I would have taken a deep breath and done what I could, and not worry about the rest at that moment. It's kinda cheesy, but it's true.

  24. 1

    Congratulations Lacey. Let's rock nocode.

    1. 1

      Super pumped to be here!
